Drupal Template:IPAc-en[1] is a free and open-source content-management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License.[2][3][4] It is used as a back-end framework for at least 2.1% of all Web sites worldwide[5][6] ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including WhiteHouse.gov and data.gov.uk.[7] It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.[8]


Template:As of, there are more than 30,000[9] free community-contributed addons, known as contributed modules, available to alter and extend Drupal's core capabilities and add new features or customize Drupal's behavior and appearance. The Drupal community has more than 1 million members[10] (Template:As of) and 31,000 Developers[11] (Template:As of). Because of this plug-in extensibility and modular design, "The Drupal Overview" on Drupal's Web site describes it as a content management framework.[3] Drupal is also describedTemplate:By whom as a Web application framework, as it meets the generally acceptedTemplate:By whom feature requirements for such frameworks.[citation needed]

Although Drupal offers a sophisticated programming interface for developers, basic Web site installation and administration of the framework requires no programming skills.[12]

Drupal runs on any computing platform that supports both a Web server capable of running PHP (including Apache, LiteSpeed, IIS, Lighttpd, Hiawatha, Cherokee or Nginx) and a database (such as MySQL, MongoDB, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite, or Microsoft SQL Server) to store content and settings.
